The D.C. Council approved a five-year, $38 million contract extension Monday for the partnership that runs the district lottery.
The partnership between Greek gaming giant Intralot and local businessman Emmanuel Bailey won the contract in 2009 after a long and contentious process that led to a federal grand jury investigation.
No charges have been filed, and D.C. officials haven't reported any problems with Intralot's performance.
Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey DeWitt considered combining the city's numbers-game and instant-ticket contracts, a possibility that angered Intralot, which doesn't print instant tickets.
But DeWitt backed away from that proposal; D.C. still lacks a permanent instant-ticket vendor.
The Council approved the extension by a 12-0 vote, after minimal debate. The contract will run through 2019.
